    How to show samples of art photos to prospective buyers

    Agreed. A good compromise is to have the long side of an image be between 1000 and 2000 pixels. Yes, they can make a print from a file of that size, but not necessarily a good quality print at a large size. And it looks good on most tablets. But I agree, if it is on the web, a crafty person...

    Editing Style Help

    His web site show a picture of him holding a Canon DSLR, but that is not much of a clue to work with. I remember seeing a photojoournalism exhibit years ago and really liking the prints a lot. They had a certain look that set them apart from what I usually saw. It made me wonder if that was...

    Welcome to the forum. Your question, and similar ones, are often asked by new members, so no worries. But, it is not an easy question to answer since you are trying to reverse engineer how he processes his images with very little facts. Your best path would probably be to get comfortable with...

    Help!

    Welcome to the forum. Regarding your serial number, if you have it you could just reenter it into LR and that should address that issue. Yes, you can chase down the cause, but if it is a one time issue, it is probably not a good investment of time. Regarding your folders, did LR happen t open...

    Will My Edits Die When I Die?!

    I agree that prints are certainly more permanent. But, after a close friend passed, his kids had previously been informed that the photos he thought folks would be most interested in were put on a specific hard drive. How they are handled in the future is certainly up for debate, but this is...

    Will My Edits Die When I Die?!

    Unless you follow the advice given above about exporting your "keeper" images, it will be important to let your family know that the image files stored elsewhere on your computer are needed if they want to export any edited files from LR. --Ken

    Will My Edits Die When I Die?!

    True. But if the photos are of family members, then there is a chance that their might be some interest in them. Remember, when asked what most people would grab if they were fleeing a burning house, a very common answer was family photos. And having visited a number of relatives in their...

    Lightroom Classic not importing all files from sd card

    Well, that sounds like it is not the reader. Last suggestions - try importing the same suspect files into a new, empty catalog. If that goes okay, then there is possibly an issue with the catalog. And if you have a recent backup of the catalog you are using, you could copy it (so as not to...

    any hope?

    If you plan to keep updating your Mac OS, you may eventually run into a compatibility issue with LR6, so you may want to consider something like LR Classic. --Ken

    How to export both the "before" and "after?"

    Import your image. Then create a virtual copy of it before you do anything else. Edit the virtual copy. Then you can export the original (unedited) and the VC (edited) and send them. You can also create additional VC's if you also need to show alternate versions. --Ken

    Is it worth upgrading from LR 6 for performance alone?

    In addition to trialing as Cletus has suggested, what size previews did you create on import? This might be one cause for some of the lag you may be seeing, but as Cletus also pointed out, you could have a number of software/hardware issues that are also slowing performance down. Finally, you...

    Lightroom Classic not importing all files from sd card

    Sounds like the reader or corruption in the software handling the reader. Do you happen to have a spare reader, or could you borrow one? This will again help narrow down the culprit. You could also create a new catalog just to test things in case the catalog has issues. --Ken

    Lightroom Classic not importing all files from sd card

    Welcome to the forum. Have you tried to copy the files to your drive and then import them from there? Also, have you tried to import from another card? These steps will help identify where the problem resides? --Ken
